Staying at home when I’m not working gives me a chance to catch up on important things, such as watching the Game Show Network, eating toast, and thinning the colony of dust bunnies which continually grows under my bed.
But 2017 was different. I traveled for vacation! I had an opportunity to go to Australia, where I realized that I enjoy the company of wallabies much more than kangaroos. I also learned that the uniforms worn by the players of Australian rules football are far superior than those of American football, and sometimes swimming with sharks is fun.
I even spotted a koala crossing the road on a magical place called Kangaroo Island.
Even though I was on vacation, I couldn’t put my camera away.
Partially because I needed to prove to people that I didn’t sit on the sofa watching the Game Show Network for vacation this year, and partially because taking pictures while traveling is something I do instinctually, like breathing or blinking.
With 2017 behind us (good riddance), I went on a sentimental journey and combed through the thousands of photos I took last year. I pulled aside a few of my favorites to share.
